    Riverside County Sheriff Deputy Down

    We lost another deputy yesterday. =( He was married..unsure on children. He had been with us since October.

    LAKE ELSINORE - An off-duty Riverside County sheriff's deputy and longtime skydiver died Saturday when his parachute failed to open properly.
    Richard Alvin Schindler, 39, a Marine Corps veteran, had been working part time at Skydive Elsinore as an instructor. During his fourth jump of the day, his parachute did not open properly and it was released from his harness, sheriff's deputies said in a release.
    Schindler, who had been skydiving for 15 years, had a back-up parachute, but there was no indication it had been deployed.
    He was pronounced dead shortly after noon.
    Schindler was a sheriff's deputy stationed at the Southwest Detention Center in French Valley.
    He learned how to jump in Fort Bragg, N.C.
    According to skydiveelsinore.com, Schindler had made more than 2,500 jumps. A resident of Lake Elsinore, Schindler shot video as a member of various skydiving teams. He also shot video of the Elsinore Matrix and the Elsinore Select, an all women's skydiving team.
    Schindler also competed nationally.
    At the 2005 U.S. National Skydiving Championships, Schindler and his Elsinore Equinox team took first place in the four-way intermediate freestyle competition.
    On a skydiving Web site, Schindler wrote that he consider that jump his most memorable.
    Included in his biography on skydiveelsinore.com, Schindler said: "When I nailed the exit I knew we won."
    For a man who loved skydiving, he hated flying.
    He included this statement on his biography: "I don't feel safe until I jump out of the damn thing and I only have 1 life left of my nine."
